Went to Petco this evening. First of all - had to leave 2 guys there that were just gorgeous.
One - I seriously almost took him home - a black/blue/red double tail
Two - gorgeous cambodian halfmoon with a purple fins.
Ugh it was so hard to leave them at the store. But I had to. I adopted out 2 guys a couple months ago to family and I still have 13 bettas now. And if I plan on expanding my sorority soon, I really just need to wait and get new girls when their new tank is ready.
Thanks for the advice, dramaqueen. I agree. I think everything should be fine once I move everything over to the 20G - everything will look different. I'll add all the girls in at once and everyone will set up new territories. I know I'll have to watch super close though with new girls around, espeically if they're smaller than my current girls. The ones I saw at Petco today mostly were young. But I saw a few that might be ok to add.
So I glued in the divider holders tonight and once those are dry I will fill the tank up and put in the plants I bought tonight. Planted tanks scare me a bit still but I'm really wanting to do it. Oh I got a 15 gallon tank, I just remembered. LOL. I already had a hood/cover for it. Unfortunately they charged me full price for the tank and I didn't notice til I got home. So I'll need to take the receipt and the proof of purchase back to the store and make sure they give me my discount. Hate having to go back to the store.
My bettas: 6 boys and 8 sorority girls
Making it my mission to have all natural planted tanks!
